During the middle part of the last century, when Omega was a leader in the many observatory trials that saw watchmakers vying for chronometric bragging rights, Omega produced a wristwatch movement equipped with a tourbillon regulator. It was all about harnessing precision, and winning accolades, in the face of stiff competition from American and British timepieces. According to the Omega Museum, only one of these Tourbillon 30 1 movements was ever cased up into a proper wristwatch at the time (though others were cased up later), and this is that very watch.
